The DREAMS Of a LAW STUDENT - Nothing Big Or Small About It

 Email  Facebook  Tweet  Linked-in

Law Schools can be stifling, stultifying and discouraging at times. People look down upon the ‘other’; sometimes very disparagingly. A mooter thinks mooting is ‘the’ thing. The cool guy thinks that ‘mooting’ is for nerds etc etc.

I believe we should respect choices. Here is a simple piece on that belief.


The many DREAMS In A Law School: Nothing BIG Or SMALL About It


In law school many people live,

People of many colours.

Colourful dreams they do have,

Dreams of many flavours.


Look! There is the GPA chap!

His wish is to be the class’s cream.

Don’t look down upon him. Clap.

Because he does have a dream.


There is the big mooter, supreme:

Vienna, Jessup and places alike,

In his dreams do they chime.

You’ll go places, I know....

But I hope, you won’t chide,

These places he wants to go.


This is the sportsman, all pumped

With all skills his body does,

Look at the sweat and the pumping blood...

Berating him ‘an unserious student’ would be lame

Because he too is a student of the game.

There is the portly rotund guy:

He eats, drinks and gets high

And plays video games all night.

Ah! He is happy in his eye....

Then why do you have this in your mind

That he is a loser in his life?


We all have dreams, dreams big,

Have your dream; a thing to achieve.

Never think that your dream is bigger...

Bigger than, others conceive.

Because dreams like love, like ethics

Cannot be ever relative;

They can only be; dreams,

Keeping the man up from his deathly sleep;

Nothing big or small about it.
